1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Show off your cake decorating skills! on: April 18, 2008 04:01:21 PM
I love, love, LOVE the Kingdom Hearts cake.
Am tempted to commission you to make me an Axel one ^^

Everybody here is so talented!
I'm embarking on a cake decorating mission with my friend for a birthday, I'll post results when I'm done = )

2  COOKING / Dessert / Re: First time using fondant on: April 02, 2008 07:53:37 AM
I'm dreadful with fondant, but when I used it, I put it over the top so it draped down then put it on top of a cake stand and cut the excess fondant off with a knife whilst  patting it down. That worked quite well dor me, the rest of it didn't, but that did!  Cheesy

Hope it's some sort of help.
Your cake is beautiful by the way, and the colour scheme is fantastic!

Thanks for your comments  Grin

Meeting the family went well! I was not shunned or tutted at, so all in all it went quite well.

I was very popular with the young family members for providing something chocolatey lol  Wink

6  COOKING / Dessert / Mint chocolate chip cookies for the in-laws. {With tutorial!} on: March 24, 2008 07:21:06 PM
Ok, so after about five months of dating, you have to meet the in-laws right?
Oh yes, and I was also meeting his whole family at a barbeque.
So being the wonderful girlfriend and person that I am, I phoned in advance to ask if I should bring anything. I was told that something for the dessert table would be good, but as they already had cake and ice-cream, something different please.

So that would be cookies then?

I apologise for the terrible phone picture.
They turned out beautifully, and tasted great.
It's a Nigella Lawson recipe, but I'll type it up  Smiley


1 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups dark chocolate chips

For the glaze

3/4 cups icing sugar
1x15ml tablespoon cocoa, sieved
2x15ml tablespoons boiling water
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract (I used 3 crushed menthol tic-tacs, I'm nothing if not thrifty -nod-)

1//Preheat oven to 180 C
2// Cream butter and sugar, then beat in the vanilla extract and egg
3//Mix flour, cocoa and baking powder and gradually beat into mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.
4//Scoop out scoops of cookie dough and place on a lined baking sheet, leaving a little space in between.
5//Bake in oven for 12 minutes. Then leave to cool on top of kitchen roll (to catch any escaping glaze later).
6//Put the glaze ingredients into a saucepan and heat until combined.
7//Using a teaspoon, zig-zag the glaze over each cooling cookie.

Really well done, I'm completely stealing this idea the next time I need a dress  Cheesy
I think the Mario one might be my favourite, but I also really do like the shiny one.

Beautiful job  Smiley
